Easter is a time of light and love, when Spring is in the
air, symbolizing growth and renewal. And for many of us, this day has deep
religious and spiritual meaning that symbolizes rebirth and eternal life. Even

serious mood swings. This is not the Brain Warrior’s way!
Remember, Brain Warriors don’t take holidays off!

A little pre-planning is all it takes to stick with your program while filling the day with foods you love that love you back. Here’s a brunch menu the whole family will love.
The following menu is light and refreshing and will fill you with energy, help keep your blood sugar from spiking and crashing, and give you a mood boost. If you feel good, you will be more able to focus on family relationships and giving back. Isn’t that the way you’d rather celebrate this special day? If so, ask yourself why the world is a better place this year because you are here. What are you doing to contribute?
